Dental Implant Cost

Home | Dental Implants | Dental Implant Cost

One of the questions patients often ask us is how much they can expect to pay for their dental implants. Many factors come into play when determining the cost of your treatment. It’s important to understand that the number of implants you need, the complexity of your treatment plan, whether bone grafting will be necessary, and other considerations can affect the total cost of your program. We understand that seeking multiple quotes has become common, so we wish to emphasize that it’s also important to ask what a quote includes. Dental implants have an abutment and a dental crown, and they require imaging services and a thorough consultation to place correctly. While not all practices include the full price when providing an estimate, Dr. Donian Shen—our Bay Area implant dentist—believes in giving you the comprehensive information you need to make the best decision for you, and that includes reviewing all the involved fees.

Dental Implant Special Pricing

At Smile By Design, we offer a dental special: dental implants start at $2,980, which includes the crown and the abutment, as well as a comprehensive consultation, 3D cone beam CT scan, and possibly IV sedation. Some dental insurance policies include discounted fees for dental implants, though many do not. If you are paying out of pocket and concerned about cost, we encourage you to consider CareCredit®, a reputable lending agency, to help cover the expense of treatment in monthly installments. Our section on dental financing can provide additional information.

Does Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

Dental implant insurance coverage can vary widely depending on the specifics of your policy. In general, the dental implant procedure itself is often not covered, since many insurance companies consider it elective. However, you may be eligible to receive benefits for portions of the dental implant treatment process, such as the dental crown that tops the implant post or the preliminary tooth extraction. Our team is highly experienced in helping patients review the details of their dental coverage in order to ensure you receive the maximum possible benefit for your procedure. We encourage you to contact us directly so that we can help you navigate the process. Our team can also help you explore supplementary financing options to cover any of the costs that your insurance plan will not.
